    Default Best toolchain

    Dear experts,

    our goal is to make a standalone display which communicates to the world over the CANbus. For this we have found a hardware provider who has a product which meets our requirements. Together with this hardware he provides a Windows CE BSP, both 5 and 6. The hard realtime behaviour is important to us so we prefer the having CE. (But let's try to not get into that discussion ). Since the CANbus will be very prominent in our application we really need to be able to debug in the device. Personally I have experience with the .NET compact framework but we are considering using Qt, however we have no experience with it.

    I am wondering what the ideal toolchain for us would be and how hard it would be to set everything up. Is this something which is doable for a newbie or is consulting advisable?

    Thanks in advance for your comments and advice,
    Jef

    It is not qt task which is basically a framework. Looks like pure system task. So you can use C/C++ for embedded system + any debugger with remote debug support.

    If you are using WinCE, then it's best to use Visual Studio toolchain for it.

    Follow this guide: http://doc.qt.nokia.com/latest/install-wince.html
